‘A sweet, filthy peach of a memoir from a cultural explosion of a man.’ — Caitlin Moran
Born into the conservative culture of mid-century North Carolina, Armistead Maupin lost his virginity to another man on the very spot where the Civil War began. His new and stunning memoir tells of his search for home and his taste for adventure, moving from the jungles of Vietnam, to the strange world of San Francisco in the 1970s. Maupin describes his search for a ‘logical family’, people he can call his own and who lie beyond the world of immediate relation. With a palm-reading Grandmother, an awkward conversation with Richard Nixon, and the details of an esteemed career documenting queer America, Logical Family is a landmark publication.
Armistead Maupin is the author of many novels, most notably his Tales of the City series, and we very much look forward to welcoming him in St Andrews to recount his extraordinary life.
